I did...hurt alot when inserted and felt weird for a couple of days but then was fine....I had irregular periods for about 3 months and then they stopped completely. You will get some clots from time to time-normal. I do get acne now-a side effect-which sucks big time (I'm 40 with pimples...lol)...but otherwise, things are fine....
I actually had mine placed for medical reasons and I got pre-approved through my insurance and then they denied the claim AFTER it was placed...it's not like I could return it or anything....grrrrrrrrrr....so I did end up having to pay for the entire thing out-of-pocket....about $500. But if you look at cost of BC over a 5 year period, I guess it's ok.
Overall, I'm happy with it.
